    In Word 2003 I have a horizontal ruler. I can go to Tools, Options..., General, and change the measurement units, but that does not let me move a tab marker to any place on the ruler by dragging it. The tab marker wants to jump in units of about 25mm, but I want to drag a marker in increments of much less than that. How please ?

    Double click in the ruler and a Tabs dialog box should open. You can then edit the default tab stops spacing.

    That brings up the wrong box, but Format, Tabs... does do just what I wanted. Thanks.
